PEADS stands for Presidential Emergency Action Documents, which appeared in an opinion letter submitted to the Red Rock News by Lincoln Fiske Jr. and printed in their 9/16/20 issue. Mr. Fiske referenced it to a CBS Sunday Morning TV program and stated PEADS is a secret authority granted to the president to declare our Constitution, Amendments , laws, etc. null and void.
This letter raised the frightening possibility that Trump, losing the election, using PEADS would declare the vote null and void and remain in office.
Article I of the Constitution states; “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in the Congress etc..” Such governance of voting law can only be laws. If the vote is declared void and the Supreme Court certainly involved their opinion would have to reference a law that doesn’t exist, by virtue of secrecy.
There could be no decision for voiding the vote.
Your tin foil hat is on much too tight.
Who is this feeble brained Stone ? Anybody know ?
Jason Stone is no authority on our Constitution so I disagree with his snide comment.
Sorry, I thought you were a paranoid comic, not an authority on the Constitution.
Maybe Jason stone will add the reason/s for his tin foil hat comment about PEADs
consider the source.
It is too bad that opposition postings to the forgoing PEADs statement and the well established report of Trump’s insult to veterans by the three some of Mendez, Stone and Bacon are evasive hateful and only directed at the authorship ( messenger ). They offer no responsible nor intelligent critiques.
That makes it difficult for the Sedona.biz staff/management to following the first Amendment and print this garbage
Maybe they don’t understand the subjects in their haste to offer invective. Or they are reluctant to compose answers to questions posed them.
Well, boys, how about it. What is it keeping you quiet .
Mike Schroeder, you are so right but CBS was party to identification in the case.
I’m certain you have dealt with people with feeble brains before so any advice other than the illegal will be welcome.
Have you run into this trio before?
Best to you
These mystery PEADs sound like either a lifesaver or a nightmare depending on who the President happens to be. Action can’t wait for Congress in a true life or death emergency, but on the flip side the President could declare something to be an “emergency” just to have the power and authority to run roughshod over Congress and the Constitution. Hopefully there are safeguards in place, but for the sake of America as we know it, we might want to avoid electing any self-serving mentally unstable dictator wannabes… even if he or she promises the greatest economy in the history of economies.
Diana you are right on it. That the 25th Amendment exists is only partially effective by itself because all the secretaries or majority would have to agree to act and remove the kook. Also, I think the generals and admirals would step in to prevent a half brained nutcake from establishing a dictatorship.
I believe we are in as good a place as can be had.
Besides if the supreme Court were ever be asked to address this issue they would not be able to agree to change the Constitution etc. in the absence of any law, etc because it wouldn’t exist – being a secret.
Does this help ?
Back to the PEADs issue and amending the Constitution where Article V prescribes the process for how this is accomplished and that it is in direct conflict with the secret provision for amendments in PEADs. For PEADS to succeed the Supreme Court would have first to be involved to clear the way. Not likely that an amendment would result.
Well there Mr.Jason Stone a serious visit about PEADs and the Constitution in case you are lost, is where this series of posts began. So that you don’t continue to feel uncomfortable, I’ll cease baiting you about it.
This actually began with you positing another of your looney conspiracy theories and then having a conversation with yourself to show how superior and brilliant you are after being baited by me. Happy indeed…
Still lost, Jason boy.
Too bad you are so sick.
More of your Constitutional expertise genius?
And if you’re the same John Roberts of Sedona I recall reading about in the Verde Independent a few years back you should be very careful about calling others sick.
Moot point. Trump will win by a landslide. Creepy Uncle Joe likely will not even make it to the election and Kamala is unfit for the job of POTUS, meaning a new candidate will emerge soon.
Doesn’t matter. Biden was never meant to be a viable candidate. He was only to add to the mass amount of lies, manipulation and confusion of the masses.
This isn’t about a virus. This isn’t about an election. This is about the reset of the global economy. We can vote for the Constitution or 5 more years of lockdowns, masks, social distancing, mandatory tests, untested vaccines, and contract tracing (look up Luciferase – yes, named after Satan because it’s the Mark of the Beast.)
40 days until the election. Make your plans and keep your family close.
ps. Trump is still the president and there’s still the 14th amendment
And Trump will be president for four more years.
It was sort of an interesting conversation until Archie went full on QAnon.
Yeah, the mark of the beast and Satan stuff is Twilight Zone worthy.
